Whoa, bruh, don't need to throw around toddlercon accusations. Those folks plain creepy. It's like calling an imouto-lover an otouto-lover

Also, just saw that emoji is called "vicx". RIP Vic, being run out of the industry by psycho women who somehow keep their job even when calling for the head and balls (so decapitation and castration) of an individual... Jamie Marchi needs to be canned already, she's a cancerous person and a terrible writer who can't help but inject personal views into other creators' work. I have more respect for fanfic writers, because they generally at least try to keep characters in-character


Sorry, I was trying to be savage, but it seems I myself need more tutelage in how to roast people.

I cannot quite attest to the veracity of the accusations, so whether or not I can lambaste people for deceit is dependent on whether or not I believe deceit has occurred; hence I cannot precisely criticize for certainty. However, I do believe that the knee-jerk reaction, however understandable it is, is worthy of criticism on the basis of both assumption and self-preserving interest.

By understandable, I do mean the act of questioning the truth of these matters. It is something that many people would be uncomfortable with, but this doesn't excuse our responsibility to be skeptical, nor does it void the power of those in charge and with the capabilities to exercise a formal investigation thereof.

If any of you are familiar with Arthur Miller, I recommend reading his play The Crucible, a dramatization of The Salem Witch Trials that he penned during The Red Scare.

Can't say I am a fan of lolis, though I did really like Kodomo no Jikan.

I don't know how I'd even start trying to accept a relationship like that in real life, but it worked for that series. I guess it's because Rin displayed as much autonomy as she did and we got to know her as well as we did that it didn't seem like a relationship between a grown man and a little girl.

Finally start to get some decent commentary over the surface emotion and a teleprompter full of memes and here comes the music to carry us out. I know there's some nice community faces in there, but eventually people we'll have to give people some time and direction to share something they might actually put to paper.

Time to grab some -


and take a walk.

Honestly, one of the funniest things about fiction in my experiences is how it has the audience sympathize with individuals we would immediately condemn in real life, especially in countries known for their harsh punitive measures and unforgiving cultures. Namely, The United States of America and Japan.

We fawn over Yuno Gasai and Satou Matsuzaka and pity the likes of Akane Shinjo, yet any time we hear of similar deviants in society, our first instinct is to label them as monsters. To an extent, entertaining the idea of some past trauma contributing to criminal behavior is tough to do so in most social situations.

One of the great things of fiction is that it allows insight that is simply not available anywhere else, in terms of why an individual does things they way they do, all those complex thought processes and weaknesses that we do not even understand of those closest to us. Sure, it is all simplified, but being able to examine a fictional representation from the ground up, from conception to death to legacy, makes almost possible an impossible concept of completely understanding another individual.

All because we can examine everything about these fictional people. It helps that Rin doesn't exactly act like a child, nor would most if any children act like that with genuine maturity.

I sure wish CR would take just 5% of the money that they spend on these awards and spend it on fixing the site instead.

That would be 2 bucks more than what they must be spending on the site right now.

Because it wasn't legally streamed anywhere until Netflix remembered that they needed to stream it, which took like half a year after it was done airing.

So, the episode of Hunter x Hunter right before Gon loses it in the Chimera Ant arc is called "Mahou de Zetsubou" in Japanese. That translates to roughly "Magic and Despair" or "Magic in Despair", depending on how "de" is used, since it's normally used to describe the location an action takes place at... The dub lists the episode as "Magic to Destroy"... Ummm... the "to" aside, how do you get "destroy" from "zetsubou"?

Anyways... NEXT WEEK IS THE EPISODE I'VE BEEN WAITING AGES FOR IN THIS SHOW

Oh yeah, don't think I mentioned it here yet. Got accepted by my university into the study abroad program for Nanzan University So gotta get my paperwork for that filled out, and I get stuff from Nanzan themselves March 1st. It's crazy thinking that after spending what will be 25 years in the Midwest, aside from trips to the rest of the continental US no more than 2 weeks long, I'll be going to the other side of the world for 9 months

I was more just making a joke back, as lolis would know their ABC's (since like, half the lolis out there are actually ancient ), but toddlercon is definitely still creepy. Like, there's no such thing as a "legal toddler". "Legal loli" there's plenty of examples of, since while loli did initially mean a child, it evolved to include the more petite body and such.

Are your last three paragraphs about the Vic thing? I can't tell at all, cause it just kinda dove from the loli/toddler imouto/otouto joke thing straight into talking about accusations, which can kinda fit both topics. If it is, I fully believe Monica Rial and Jamie Marchi, at least, are overblowing things. Jamie Marchi has a history of writing problematic lines and changing dialogue, as well as attacking fans verbally on social media, and Monica Rial was being all chummy with Vic just last month. Granted you gotta keep up work appearances, but you aren't obligated to reply to tweets saying how you love the group you're in with him and such.

Plus, with how Funimation works, it gives people like Jamie and Monica incentive to get Vic booted, because it opens up more roles such as ADR Director and the like for them to get on future productions. That means more money for them. People keep on saying "What would they gain from lying about Vic being a creep!?" and I'm just over here like, this money. This is what they can gain. And regardless of the claims, Jamie's comments on social media go 100% against the public statement Funimation made, yet they're not firing her, which shows the hypocrisy surrounding the current social movement and the magical immunity women have (to a degree).

At this point, Funi just kinda needs to wipe their old slate clean. They've been getting some good new people in (Re:Zero has been pretty darn good so far, and they got some new talent as lead roles there, for example), and a lot of these older men and women will only last so long now. Sure, Wayne Allwine can do Mickey into his late years, but it's a bit harder for older folks to voice teenagers and do constant anime yells Start getting people used to the next generation now before you gotta just do all new blood, and people are put off.

Congratz cal.

Edit: Youkai Shoujo has been killing it with the bath service lately.

Edit: TIL Japanese schoolgirls in the 70s and 80s wearing super long skirts was a form of rebellion against the gender norms of society. I just thought an artist thought it looked cool at some point and it became a thing in manga.

Kind of makes its origin as a symbol opposing fetishization somewhat ironic, but I assume there are new ones now.

I felt the need to reference my older imoutos here, many of whom exist here on Crunchyroll. *I was being facetious*

I wonder what Japanese universities are like. Warning, be prepared to eart loads of rice and things added to rice, so I was told.

It is a general statement regarding the kangaroo court of public opinion. It dives into the ethics of assumptions versus deceit. While deceit is certainly immoral, whether or not these individuals are lying is something I am unable to attest to. It would be irresponsible for me to state they are liars with an agenda unless further evidence was made available, or that Vic certainly did those things. I will admit, the number of accusations does strengthen the case against him, but these sorts of snowball accusations have happened previously before in different eras. Even if people do stand to benefit, that is not evidence. Moreover, the burden of proof rests with the claimants.

However, it is immoral to act with certainty on assumptions that haven't been thoroughly doubted. Hence the actions taken to fire individuals are indeed wrong, even if the allegations prove to be true because there doesn't seem to be any formal investigations; moreover, there is sufficient belief that these firings are ultimately in a self-serving interest to save public face.

I do believe there is a culture of power at hand, given C.K. Louis' admittance to his own sexual misbehavior, "It's all true what they accused me of", and subsequent testimonies given in several cases. This doesn't mean I believe every person is guilty.
